How do I register my site/URL with Ask so that it will be indexed

Post by NewsOnline on Thu Dec 01, 2011 4:29 pm

Q: How do I register my site/URL with Ask so that it will be indexed?

A: We appreciate your interest in having your site listed on Ask.com and the Ask.com search engine. Your best bet is to follow the open-format Sitemaps protocol, which Ask.com supports. Once you have prepared a sitemap for your site, add the sitemap auto-discovery directive to robots.txt, or submit the sitemap file directly to us via the ping URL. (For more information on this process, see Does Ask.com support sitemaps?) Please note that sitemap submissions do not guarantee the indexing of URLs.

Create your Web site and set up your Web server to optimize how search engines look at your site's content, and how they index and trigger based upon different types of search keywords. You'll find a variety of resources online that provide tips and helpful information on how to best do this.

Q: Does Ask.com support sitemaps?

A: Yes, Ask.com supports the open-format Sitemaps protocol. Once you have prepared the sitemap, add the sitemap auto-discovery directive to robots.txt as follows:

SITEMAP: http://www.the URL of your sitemap here.xml

The sitemap location should be the full sitemap URL. Alternatively, you can also submit your sitemap through the ping URL:

http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.yoursite.com/yoursitemap.xml

Please note that sitemap submissions do not guarantee the indexing of URLs. To learn more about the protocol, please visit the Sitemaps web site at http://www.sitemaps.org.
